How do you present your qualifications?

Qwiki delivers interactive, multimedia presentations of information you’re researching. It’s a 3-D way of representing information making it more impactful and easier to digest. Think of it as a multimedia, customizable Wikipedia. This is part of a trend away from text-based content — to richer, more effective communications. In last year’s personal branding trends, Arruda stressed the importance of combining video and images with text content to tell your brand story. Soon, with a series of Qwiki-like tools, you’ll be able to create a multimedia personal brand presentation. Instead of resumes or portfolios, you’ll be able to use a personal Qwiki to present your qualifications in a more attractive way. And you can direct people to this multimedia presentation via your personal QR code.

What does this mean for you?

Multimedia is becoming even more important to you as you build your brand. Ensure you take every opportunity to create and obtain video and images related to your brand. When Qwikis become personal, you’ll be able to put together a compelling, customized presentation about your brand — accomplishments, thought leadership, passions, etc. The more content you have to work with, the better your presentation will be. Multimedia is a must!

William Arruda, founder of Reach Personal Branding and author of "Career Distinction" and the upcoming book, "Ditch. Dare. Do!,"  has been in the business of helping people build their brands for a decade and each year, he publishes his personal branding trends for job seekers. Take a look at this year’s trends, posted on TheLadders, and decide which will help give you an edge and attract the attention of recruiters and hiring managers.
